the obama administration responsible. the money she raised recently came from $5 and $10 contributions. the money came from people who were not in her district. and her district is becoming fed up with her. host: that was michael on the republican line. the national rifle association put out a statement following the defeat of the bill. "new york times seeking a lead editorial -- broderick in albany, georgia. your thoughts? all i amirst of getting ready to graduate from political science. out of the 46 senators, two are from georgia and i plan to get on the phone and talk to them. also agun owner and i am christian. i was shocked when i was 16 years old. that if background checks were into effect back than i could have had not been shot. i'm doing what i can rallies in support to find out why the senators voted against the bill. as you know we have two senators from every state. i am just upset because background to prevent lives that were lost in the other areas -- >> as a gun owner you supported what the senate was debating yesterday? >> i felt that a background check -- they could s
, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh
secretary janet napolitano anytime at our website, c-span.org. the president obama released a statement earlier today on that explosion in west, texas. he said quote today our prayers o out to the peoplest my aatdmin, through fema and other agencies, is in close contact with our state an lalrsk sure there are no unmet needs. again,the president in a statement earlier today. nancy pelosi holding her weekly legislative briefing. that was a bit early. she discussed yesterday's failed vote on bipartisan gun legislation in the senate. she was joined by congressman mike thompson who chairs the gun violence prevention task force. they're proposing a house version of a compckgroundck this is 20 minutes. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> as we gather here this morning, people are gathering in boston for a prayer service. we joined them, our prayers and thoughts are with the people of boston, the families of all of the victims of this senseless tragedy, wherever they are from. we pray for the recovery of the injured and as americans and members of congress. words are always inadequate for time
during your open periods. >> the obama administration has chosen to survive the suspect in the boston marathons in a civil trial. did they do the right thing? 90 seconds, sir. >> i believe that president obama and his justice department are completely committed to ensuring that justice is done in this case. all voted president obama last week. he said that justice would be done in this case. if in the opinion of president obama and his justice department, the proper place for prosecution is here in the federal district court system of the state of massachusetts, i believe that the court system here in massachusetts can provide that kind of a venue in order to hear this case. i defer to president obama. i defer to his justice department. if in their judgment, this is the proper place in order to conduct that trial. >> thank you, sir. mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> i think we have sufficient laws in our criminal system to prosecutor terror its, number two if you will. i think the effort to classify baptsant. nemy com i've been to gitmo and i've been involved in the process of trying to find
points on the backs of weary travelers. it should be to fix the problem. look, the obama administration knew about the sequester for months, for months, yet it gave the traveling public and congress only three days' notice before implementing the furloughs that are now being blamed for these delays. the f.a.a. administrator testified before the commerce and appropriations committees last week but made no mention of the magnitude and impact of delays of these furloughs that were just right around the corner. it seems completely bluesable t- completely implausible to me when hthat he didn't mention thn he testified last week. this episode is a perfect illustration of why republicans sought to give the administration even greater flexibility to ensure they could prioritize essential services. one of the areas for which that flexibility was intended was air traffic control. the fact that the administration rejected it strongly suggests a political motive is at play here. i would also remind everyone that this flexibility was reflected by nearly every -- rejected by nearly every democrat in
obama and adding to the song "yes, we can: voices of a grassroots movement," she has well sung the national anthem at the national championship football game and as well she has given a lot of contributions to american music. she is a supporter of music education for our children, the mother of a daughter and, yes, a prominent american. but i think if we could say the most about yolanda adams is that she never stops evangelizing and seeking to help those who are hopeless and in despair. she brings joy to those who seek it and believes that everyone is a child of god. i'm grateful to know yolanda adams and to claim her as a constituent of the great city of houston and the great state of texas. but most of all, she's an american who is a believer and understands the value of america's freedom to be able to worship. she continues to soldier on to save souls and we're delighted to have been able to have her bless us this morning. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair will entertain five further requests for one-minute speeches on each side of the aisle. the

with the global terrorist threat. on taking office, president obama declined to undertake an official study of what happened. senator leahy introduced legislation to establish a truth commission, and congress failed to act on it. so in many respects, this task force, this report is the comprehensive examination of the treatment of suspected terrorists that official washington has been reluctant to conduct. task force members believe that having an understanding of what occurred during this period of serious threat and willingness to acknowledge any shortcomings strengthen the nation and equip us to better cope with any future crises. it knowing what happened, our reputation, as an exemplary practitioner of the rule of law, will clearly be damaged. the task force is made up of as jenny said, a broad cross-section of folks have been in government, who understand government, who understand military, who understand the role of intelligence. the bios are in your folder but i would like to take just a minute to introduce them at this time. dr. gerald thomson, the former, our professor emeritus at
. the report put out by the constitution project is critical of both bush and obama administration's. it includes former members of congress. this is 50 minutes. >> thank you for your leadership on the task force and i want to express my thanks to the constitution project, but also to all of my fellow task force members what they brought to the table in terms of experience, wisdom, public service really made a difference in the development of this project and important report. as jim mentioned, there's more than 24 findings and recommendations. we can't cover all of those this morning that we want to hit some of the highlights. we hope he will take the entire report, study it through and look at each of those recommendations. why is this report important? it's important because we as a nation have to get this right. i looked back in history to the time during world war ii that we in turn to some japanese-americans. at the time it seemed like the right and proper thing to do but in light of history, it was an error. as of today this report will hopefully put into focus some of the a
obama took office was the exact opposite. before he began the surplus had been turned into a deficit. >> was their budget, mr. secretary come in primary balance? with the economy growing faster than the annual budget deficits come is that what you're saying? >> does the budget proposed, which are advocating, just back of the? tell us how we do that. >> or reduce the deficit as a percentage of gdp in the end of the ten-year window to less than 2% in somewhere around 3% you going to primary balance depending that interest rates are year-to-year, but for the second half of the budget window, we are in primary balance, in surplus. in terms of primary balance calculations. >> it is important that question needs to be asked over and over again in your response remembered. i'm pleased the budget also the is an extension to a new state volume cap on tax exempt qualified activity bonds for the furnishing of water in the system from which needs billions and billions of dollars to keep up with the time. it was the wastewater, it added up to 1 trillion, $200 trillion. we started a down payment o
house, president obama pledged to hunt down those responsible. >> make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> reporter: monday was patriots day in massachusetts, and the boston marathon is usually a day of celebration. for many, it will now be remembered as a day of shock, sorrow, and terror. boston will be back in business today except for this huge crime scene that extends behind me for about a mile, three blocks on either side, an area closed off to business owners and even residents who live in this area and savannah, we should note public transit passers have been warned there will be random searches on the "t" here of bags and other objects. >> lester in boston thank you so much. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams following overnight developments in the investigation. pete, good morning. it seems there is no clearer picture as to who may be behind this. >> i think that's certainly true although ther
complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r

not made in order. yesterday, the obama administration expressed ongoing concerns about this legislation, issuing a veto threat. i share the president's concern, despite positive changes that this bill falls short in several key ways. as written right now and hopefully there still may be some changes, cispa allows the military to directly collect personal information on american citizens, it fails to safeguard privacy of americans and grants sweeping immunity to companies for decisions made based on cyberinformation prohibiting consumers from holding companies accountable for reck less actions. i urge opposition. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for 30 seconds. ms. schakowsky: i was going to conclude by saying i urge my colleagues to oppose this bill, we can and should do better and i'm hopeful that we still bill do -- will do better and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentlelady's time has expire. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. ruppersberger: thank you, madam chair, i yield myself 30 seconds. i want to make very, very clear in the bill and i th

. there are many unanswered questions still going on in this investigation. president obama addressed the topic of unanswered questions last night when he talked to the country after the capture of the second suspected bombing suspect. this is what the president had to say. [video clip] >> obviously tonight there are still many unanswered questions. among them, why did young man who grew up and study here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of who have to learn how the sand, and walk, and again, deserve answers. we will continue to deploy all the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence, and to protect our citizens. we will determine what happened, we will investigate any associations these terrorists may have had, and we will continue to do whatever we had to do to keep our people safe. host: that was the president last night making the announcement that in fact the second suspect
, president obama is to blame for these delays. he had very little choice if we don't change things. and this is a way to change things. so if you want to get rid of these delays which we all very much want to on both sides of the aisle, i would propose to my colleagues the solution proposed by the majority leader is the best way to go given the political necessities on the other side, the desire not to have any revenues, even closing certain tax loopholes. and so i would hope we could come together and vote on this. i would hope that this solution, which, by the way, cutting the o.c.o. has been supported by republicans. i remember senator kyl, the former senator was arizona, was advocating this late last year to deal with the doc fix and the d.r.g.'s and other things. the people will come together on it. so i would hope we could vote for this proposal, put the air traffic controllers back to wo work, off their furloughs, get rid of these delays and then come together in a grand agreement in time for the september budget. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. leader? mr. reid: i ask una

that obama was waging in so forth and so on and the reality is, the first amendment didn't emerge from the east though. it wasn't some intellectual exercise. it was, as were the other amendments, the constitution itself specific response to specific historical events. in this book really goes into many of those events and supportive grew into the first amendment later. but, as a writer, a thing to try to prevent writing the president into the past to have to be aware of the biases and as amy said, you may not have to hide them necessarily but you have to be aware of them, referring to the fact that i was a football coach and i did that for a few years after he dropped out of my ph.d. program in history. and i was a defensive coordinator at a small college and i was on the defense that has sort of the built-in weakness. it was great in many places but there was an area of the defense that we were outnumbered by the offensive players. we were on the defense anyway and actually we were quite successful but we knew that. every single day we practiced so weakness would not kill us and every
